Artificial Intelligence - Growing Beyond Barriers
Witnessing the rise of AI in areas of data recognition and pattern analysis, followed by decision making, nearly every industry is moving toward the adoption of AI while addressing the existing challenges.
The AI domain has witnessed immense growth given that the overall market is expected to rise to US $16.06 billion by 2022 at a CAGR of 62.9% over six years. With each passing day, the technology grows with a stronger industry influence.
The merger of AI and RPA is expected to change healthcare, allowing patients to live independently using an AI-based system connected with RPA. For example:
Emma is 72 years old, living alone in her Boston home. She has had multiple surgeries and is medicated for high blood pressure and panic attacks. One evening while on a walk, she suddenly falls and collapses. Though she is still conscious, she cannot walk. Who's going to help her or contact her family and friends?
Now imagine Emma has a sensor-based wearable on her wrist. The band is AI-driven, capable of tracking her health information, sending notifications and alerts to an emergency contact and connected to a 911 number if necessary.
As Emma collapses, the device detects unusual behavior, then immediately sends an alert to the medical emergency staff, also sharing her location. An emergency alarm or notification is sent to her designated family member or friend. An app connected to her device pops up with a virtual assistant (RPA) with whom she can connect. This assistant asks her several questions, learning about her current status and suggests some measures. If Emma is still having difficulties, the assistant can alert her to a healthcare assistant who can temporarily assist her.
